Door Wars: The Triathlon EVERYONE Can Participate In
If you spent Super Sunday sitting on a couch for hours, consuming large quantities of salted snacks, dip, and adult beverages, while watching Super Athletes compete, you may be feeling an urge to get up and get some exercise. But, it’s cold outside. And, let’s face it, you’re not exactly an IronMan or IronLady type who likes to wear yourself out by jogging, swimming, or biking.
That’s why Fix St Louis is proud to introduce the Door Triathlon, an indoor event in which even the most couch-potatoed homeowner can be a winner.
There are 3 stages of competition:
- Tug-of-Door: Go around to every door in your house. Make a note of every door that’s hard to open or close. Maybe it’s because the door edges are rubbing against the door frame, or the bottom of the door is rubbing against the carpet.
- Grand Slam: Next, a second round of going door-to-door. This time, make a note of all the doors that won’t close that last inch or two without a full body slam. And, that includes doors that close pretty easily, but just don’t make that final reassuring click to tell you the door is fully closed and won’t open without a turn of the knob.
- Punch Wall: One more round, but this time, don’t look at the doors, but at the walls the doors swing into. See any suspicious punched-in areas with contours that resemble the closest doorknob?
That’s a winner! You may resume your seated position on the couch, preferably one with a phone within arm’s length. To claim your medal, call Fix St Louis. We can fix every door problem you found, so you can nail your next Door Triathlon.
